DRAPER, Utah, -- StorageCraft Technology Corp., a global leader in backup and disaster, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Mike Kunz, senior vice president of operations, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

Channel Chiefs honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Kunz, who served as vice president of worldwide sales until he was recently named the company’s senior vice president of operations, is a Channel Chief because he has been instrumental in StorageCraft expanding its global reach by developing channel partnerships that focus on profitability for the partners.
